Happy Thirsty Thursday, y'all. Welcome to another stunning, flawless, amazing, surviving the premiere episode of the tenth season of American Idol better than your favorite edition of the Majak Mixtape, where pop culture goes when everybody is on a commercial break. In today's Mixtape, in honor of the grand college tradition of binge drinking one's self into a fabulous stupor, we're celebrating some of our favorite drunk-in-public celebrities of late. But before start popping bottles, it's time for us to:
First up, the Jackson brothers prove that there is always new ways for them to be tacky as they launch a Michael Jackson inspired clothing exclusively for Urban Outfitters next month, according to reports. Cost of a Michael Jackson Thriller jacket replica? $600. Approaching a designer with your idea for a clothing a WEEK after your brother's untimely death? Priceless.
In other tacky news, several news outlets reported that Hilary Duff is pregnant and then ended up retracting the statement after the "Lizzie McGuire" star took to her Twitter to deny reports. That didn't stop Star Magazine though from not only running with the story but sending out their own Tweet to Ms. Duff saying, "Okay, Hilary, we'll see in another month when you start showing!" You almost have to admire their tenacity at being all up in other people's business. Almost.
Speaking of Twitter, "Jersey Shore" Snooki took to her Twitter to celebrate being a NY Times Best Selling author. And by author, she means, lending her name to a book written by somebody else. Elsewhere, Jodi Picoult was slinging shade at the idea of Snooki writing a book, which is sort of hilarious because as crap-tastic as the idea of a reality star writing a book is, it's not like Ms. Picoult books are exactly the second coming of Margaret Atwood.
MTV is allegedly concerned that their new show "Skins" might violate federal child porn laws in upcoming episodes according to the "NY Times." They should really be more concerned about the fact that, you know, it's terrible.
And speaking of terrible, Christopher Nolan has cast Anne Hathaway in the role of Catwoman in the next Batman film.
Our thoughts exactly Michelle.
Oh drunk celebrities, they're just like us, if we were puking into gold plated buckets and having a harried assistant hold our thousands of dollars worth of extensions back. There is a thing of about being celebrity that you pretty much live in a really expensive state of adolescence until your fame eventually runs out. Once the fame runs out, you are drop kicked from being a teen to a senior citizen trying to get work. But until then, you're pretty much doing what any normal teenager with boatloads of money would be doing, which is making questionable choices in terms of your career prospects, shopping a lot and getting trashed in a lot of public places.
First up, Christina Aguilera has been all over the press of late with stories about alleged tiff with her "Burlesque" co-star Julianne Hough at a recent pre-Golden Globes party to a recent story circulating that she got drunk at "The Hurt Locker" star Jeremy Renner's birthday party at his house and passed out in his bed. Christina's people are denying she drank the genie out of the bottle and passed out anywhere while Renner's folks gave the less than stirring denial of, "She was enjoying herself, but she wasn't in his bed." And then there was this clip of Christina Aguilera, either being tipsy or wearing too high of shoes OR doing a visual demonstration of her career the last year:
In honor of Drunktina Aguilera, we're kicking off the Mixtape with Nouvelle Vague's cover of the Dead Kennedys' tune "Too Drunk to Fuck."
And Christina Aguilera drinking a little bit here and there is fine, since she is dealing with a brokenheart. Hopefully she doesn't go full-out Amy Winehouse, who has been trying to mount a comeback of sorts for the past ten thousand years it feels like. Ms. Winehouse has recently been performing shows in Brazil and showing that her ability to connect with an audience is second only to her ability to connect with a bottle of alcohol.
We're actually really disheartened by this because Amy Winehouse, on occasion, has been able to pull out a decent performance the last couple years:
Well with you gone, we're glad that Adele has continued to produce amazing music and herself has told the press that she's decided that she's cutting down on her drinking. Her album "21" isn't due in the United States for another month, but we are already in love "Rolling in the Deep." Below Adele gets mixed with Jay-Z in a delightful mash-up:
In less trainwreck alcoholism and more endearingly intoxicated, some of the "Glee" cast members were interviewed by that great interviewer AC Slater for "Extra" and were clearly feeling NO PAIN.
Show creator Ryan Murphy must spend most of his time getting drunk, how else would you explain news that he's signed Anne Hathaway to play Kurt's lesbian aunt, based pretty much only on the fact that she wanted to be on the show and approached him at the Golden Globes. Or the fact that he announced that he's breaking up a couple on the show simply because he "was bored." Oh the writing on "Glee," it's about as organic as pleather pants.
In honor of the drunk kids from "Glee," we have one of our favorite Bright Eyes tunes up next, "Drunk Kids and Catholics," which surprisingly has little or nothing to do with an priest scandals.
And we couldn't make a list about hot drunk messes without including the king of drunk messes of late:TMZ, who have been on the Charlie Sheen story like coke on a starlet's nose, Charlie Sheen gets the ladies not with charm but with blunt honesty as he sent out an e-mail to a hooker stating, "I'm an A-list actor you mite[sic] like to meet." That's smoother than a James Van Der Beek winking .gif.
And according to RadarOnline, Charlie Sheen spent around $26,000 on hookers during his infamous lost weekend. That seems like a lot, but we're pretty sure that CBS pays more to the "Two and a Half Men" writers who do the same amount of sucking. Classy joke is classy!
So in honor of Charlie Sheen, a mess so bad that his brother Emilio and his father Martin AREN'T EVEN MENTIONING HIM in their joint memoir which means the high road they took will most likely be paved with all the unsold books, we're ending this mixtape with Pink's song "Hooker."
And with that, we end another stunning, flawless, amazing edition of the Majak Mixtape. As always, we wish you love, peace and downloads! BRING ON THE DANCERS
